About


Maxville Interpretive Center

"Maxville" was the railroad logging town that existed about 15 miles north of Wallowa, Oregon. The Maxville Project reflects the local community's deep appreciation for the preservation of its oral history, photographs, historical structures and forested landscape.

The Maxville Heritage Interpretive Center serves as a platform to unify the multiple cultures through educational programs, exhibits, and events. Educational outreach with local school districts and universities as well as historical/ archeological studies of the town site are both programs under development.

Our Mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret the rich history of the multicultural logging community of Maxville, Oregon and similar communities in the Pacific Northwest.
